Hello everybody, recently I upgraded to Windows 7 not using the upgrade function, so I do not have a windows.old so i can't do the easy fix.
First off, this is my computer(laptop)
VGN FZ180E (VAIO)
The standard vga adapter hardware ids:
Here are the steps that i take:
1) i go to this site Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
2) Product series 8M
3)DL the software
4) get the INF file from this thread Windows not recognizing NVidia GeForce 8400M GT
5) c+p the inf file into the dled driver
7)select the 8800M GS Version 18.104.22.16892
8)from there it attempts to install
When it tries to install, an error comes up saying: NVIDIA control panel could not be installed which may affect driver functionality. The most recent driver will be restored.
from there, i have to restart my computer, and the VGA adapter is still in place.
So am i doing something wrong? is it because of this control panel thing?
thanks in advance!
